I say I went and would loved for that to be the case as the website, reviews and premises look fantastic but we they don't allow children :-( I wish them well, business is clearly good as they can turn away 8 covers.

We've used the Rag many times over the years but haven't been for a while. The standards are still very high. The food was excellent as was the service. Recommended.
